Description

The Bergepanzer Sd.Kfz. 179, or Bergepanther was a heavy armored recovery vehicle based on the chassis of the Panzer V Panther, with the first production model being the Ausf. A. The Bergepanther first began its development in 1942 because of the need for a heavy tank recovery vehicle that could manage heavy German armour such as the Panther medium tanks or Tiger I heavy tanks. These generally required up to three SdKfz 9 Famo half-tracks to recover them compared to the single half-track needed to tow a Panzer III or Panzer IV. This made the Panther the main contender for the new heavy armored recovery vehicle.
